Fuyu persimmons. These can be eaten right away. They won't tie up your mouth with tannins like Hachiya persimmons. Hachiya persimmons have to become incredibly soft and squishy ripe in order to be eaten. Fuyu persimmons can be eaten like apples, skin and all. These are very addictive and I eat these like mad when they are in season.
